Hi Loves! So there is good news and bad news this week. Which should I share first? I’m going to share the bad news first. It’s been a stressful weekend. Stress = eating. I was craving chocolate a lot this weekend and I ate some. And… I gained just shy of 2 pounds. 😦 I think that is one area that yoga helped me with. Controlling my stress and being able to check it at the yoga mat and put it past me. I haven’t been able to do that for a couple months.
How about some good news? I completed 8 days of the 31 day Squat, Lunge, and Push up challenge!! Man it took me 4 days of hardly being able to walk because my thighs were angry to get to a point where they are just randomly annoyed but not killing me! Squats have yet to be my problem. It’s the lunges that get me, every single time!!!
When I started I could do about 2 lunges on each side and pause, then 2 more, etc. Sunday I got to 8 lunges (16 total) before I had to pause. The challenge has me putting my knee to the floor, and I do one on each leg. Left, Right, left, right instead of doing all one side and then another.
I’ve been taking angry thigh pictures just to see if I notice any change. (Day 2 and Day 8) I doubt I will but it will be interesting to see if I can tell anything changed.
How about you, do you like squats, lunges, or push ups? The push ups are a bit hard too but the lunges are my current problem area!
Have a great week friends!
